About the Author

MarcyKate Connolly is a New York Times bestselling children's book author and nonprofit administrator who lives in New England with her family and a grumble of pugs. She graduated from Hampshire College (a magical place where they don't give you grades) where she wrote an opera sequel to Hamlet as the equivalent of senior thesis. It was also there that she first fell in love with plotting and has been dreaming up new ways to make life difficult for her characters ever since. She is the author of the Shadow Weaver and Hollow Doll series and The Star Shepherd. You can visit her online at marcykate.com.

Reviews

"Within this creative realm, Connolly compassionately explores human emotions as Greta grapples with a newly discovered lineage. A welcome return to a complex land of fantasy and friendship."--Booklist
"Even with her flaws, her fierce dedication to her brother is admirable, and her slow transformation into a more accepting, open person is all the more satisfying given her earlier closed views."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: "This is a dazzling and unique once-upon-a-time about a girl who is part dragon, part bird, part cat, all hero."----Natalie Lloyd, author of A Snicker of Magic
PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: "Kym's bravery shines, as she fights against the menacing forces in Bryre and also struggles to figure out where she, a self-described monster of a girl, belongs. This remarkable, absorbing debut will enchant readers."----Rebecca Behrens, author of When Audrey Met Alice

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: "A likely read-aloud that has its share of guts, blood, and grim reality within this fantasy land, Monstrous will keep young readers thinking about trust, good and evil, friendship and loyalty, and devotion to community."--Booklist
PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: "Magic, fantastic creatures, mythology, and a bit of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein combine here for an exciting...tale."--School Library Journal
PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: "Connolly invokes fairy-tale elements with ease, and... the formidable theme of sacrifice resonates far beyond the final page."--Publishers Weekly
